This treasure of a book is packed with lovely recipes to transport you back to childhood. (Prima)
'An amazing book, heartening and delightful ... everybody should read this book ... what parenting is supposed to be about' (Vanessa Feltz, BBC Radio London)
If as a child you devoured Enid Blyton's classics like the Famous Five or Malory Towers, or loved to lose yourself in the adventures of Pippi Longstocking or What Katy Did, then CHERRY CAKE AND GINGER BEER is the book for you. A wonderfully nostalgic cookery book, it will take you straight back to your favourite children's books and show you how to cook the feel-good foods that feature so strongly in them. So, you'll find recipes for Swallows and Amazons Squashed-Fly Biscuits, the Famous Five's Gorgeous Ginger Beer, and Gloriously Sticky Marmalade Roll from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe amongst others. Divided into appropriate sections like Proper Elevenses, Picnic Treats and Lessons in the Kitchen each recipe is introduced with an evocative description of the book that inspired it. Guaranteed to take you straight back to your childhood, the book is an escapist treat for grown-ups and will encourage you to re-visit much-loved classics and share them with the next generation.See all Product description

I enjoyed reading it so much and reacquainting myself with many old favourites and friends from books from my childhood. They were all there....Just William, Katy from What Katy Did, lots of Enid Blyton characters, Wind in the Willows....the list went on.
Just as good were the recipes. I was inspired from the start and have made several cakes and biscuits already. The cherry cake and a fruit cake in particular have gone down well in my family!
A lovely book to read.....and a lovely book to cook from. I recommend it highly and have just bought another for my sister who I know will enjoy it just as much.
